it's my birthday in like 8 days, and I want to make a whateverfund to get monies to buy new lab hw, but I feel guilty of asking money ;_;


@dashie you shouldn't feel guilty as you are always sharing toots about what you are working on (and its always interesting and unusual stuff, even by the standards of a social network full of techies..)

@vfrmedia I doesn't work a lot of my projects tbh, primarily on big ones who takes time.
I have a lot of side projects to finish but they all requires to buy stuff and meh.

I took a year and half or maybe two to order an IC to continue repairing a mfj automatic antenna tunner :|

@dashie I think thats normal particularly with electronics and amateur radio - its not like you can just download the latest stuff like with software, and components aren't always easy to source...

@vfrmedia it's mainly my ADHD, most of components I need I just do a big mouser order, or ebay ones

@dashie I haven't even done any electronics projects since about 2017 in spite of having most of the bits I need, as my day job has taken up most of the spoons I need to get back into the hobby (ironically it pays well enough for me to afford to get things, its just that I lack time/energy these days)
